‘Things That Happened On My First Day At Target’, Employee Goes Viral After Hilarious Confessions.

first day at target tumblr post

It’s no secret that Target is the bomb. We’ve told you before about the kindness of their cashiers, their hilarious enthusiasm over Black Friday shopping, we’ve even told you about a 7-year-old kid who threw his birthday party at Target! Everyone knows, Target is a magical place.

So when Tumblr user kimpossibooty started his new job at Target, he knew he was in for a real experience. He recorded all the events of his budding Target-career, day by day, and shared them on Tumblr. “Gave dozens of children stickers. Several of them squealed when they got them. This is the best part of my job.” he writes on Day 1. Then, on Day 3, disaster strikes: ” Two children came through the line. They were chanting to their mom through heavy streams of tears. “WE WANT STICKERS MOMMY.” There were no stickers at any of the registers. They continued crying. I failed my people.”

Kimpossibooty’s mini-memoir is absolutely hilarious. And he’s relentlessly positive! Never annoyed– even by the group of elderly friends that pay him entirely in change, or the little kid who insist on making a purchase on his own like a grown-up, or even the stacks of coupons and gift cards. It is so refreshing to read in an age of sarcasm and cynicism!

Check out his hilarious observations during Days 1-5 at Target below:

“Sold a bra to the mom of a sixteen year old girl who was cringing the entire time.”

“A customer came through looking nervous. She leaned over the counter. She whispered to me. Someone had pooped in the baby supplies aisle. All evidence pointed to it not being a baby.”
